This case involves an injury to a woman shopping at a supermarket. The supermarket was two stories and had an automated escalator used to transport shopping carts from one floor to the next. The escalator was only for carts, and an adjacent escalator was for shoppers. The plaintiff, a shopper, placed her cart on the escalator and descended on the adjacent escalator. She reached the lower floor and prepared for the arrival of her cart. There were no warning signs or suggested wait areas for retrieving the cart. Also, the two “doors” which were designed to slow the progress of the cart when it exited the escalator were absent. The shopping cart reached the lower level, but was shot out of the escalator and struck the plaintiff, which caused the plaintiff to break an ankle and suffer a concussion in the subsequent fall.
